Whether you are a female business owner, entrepreneur, freelancer, or spend most of your days working from home, you need a dedicated workspace. And while there are plenty of options of where to work, like coffee shops or your living room, these aren’t always the best places to get things done.
Working from home sometimes allows you to get too comfortable or start doing other things, like laundry (We’ve all been there). Going to a coffee shop each day just isn’t logical. It’s loud, crowded, and not always reliable.
Need another option? We have one. Co-working offices. What are these exactly? Co-working spaces are shared workspaces or offices that usually offer shared spaces and private rooms. Typically, you will pay an annual or monthly fee to use these spaces.
Co-working has become increasingly popular in the last decade, with spaces like WeWork, Industrious, and Spaces opening up all over the country. Not to mention all the local independent options you have for workspace as well. For example in Atlanta, you also have Atlanta Tech Village, Roam, Switchyards Downtown Club, and countless others.
With so many options, there’s something for everyone. But the ones that really grabbed our attention were the co-working offices for women. They come with some lovely, exclusive amenities! And it’s also an incredible opportunity to network with like-minded women.
We’ve put together a list of our picks for the seven best co-working offices for women. We hope one of these will be nearby and will fit your needs!
